My Weekend Crushing It

In my ongoing effort to bring good news to our garbage reality, please allow me to introduce you to 16-years-old Australian explorer Jade Hameister. She is the youngest person to ever complete the so-called “Polar Hat Trick.” This means, at an age most people are just figuring out how to drive a car, she has reached the North and South Poles and crossed the Greenland ice sheet. It’s all terribly impressive, of course. But what makes it even more impressive is how Jade has chosen to handle the (inevitable) misogynistic trolls. After posting of her epic accomplishment at reaching the South Pole Jan. 10, the next day she posted the above photo that included this absolutely crushing bit in her caption:

“Tonight (it never gets dark this time of year) I skied back to the Pole again... to take this photo for all those men who commented “Make me a sandwich” on my TEDX Talk. I made you a sandwich (ham & cheese), now ski 37 days and 600km to the South Pole and you can eat it xx”

Suck it, loser dudes. Fuck yeah, Jade. Happy weekend, all.
